Thirty-two years after the original "Top Gun" movie, the sequel is slated for release July 12, 2019.

It seemed insane that anyone might make a sequel to 1986's Top Gun without including Val Kilmer's Iceman, but then again, it seemed insane that anyone might make a sequel to 1986's Top Gun after Tony Scott died, and look where that assumption got us. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Val Kilmer will star opposite Tom Cruise in "Top Gun: Maverick" which is now filming. Now, three years later, it's finally official.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has stated that the Top Gun sequel would have Cruise returning to his role as Maverick and having to deal with a very big problem.

Cruise shared the first photo from the set of the Top Gun sequel last week, posting a pic of himself stepping right back into his old uniform.

Wozniacki did however make the quarterfinals a year ago in Paris prior to losing to the eventual champion Jelena Ostapenko. Putintseva matched her best Roland Garros performance by reaching the quarter-finals for the first time since 2016.

We know precious little about the plot of Top Gun 2 aside from the fact that it will supposedly be tackling issues relating to drone warfare. TMZ caught up with Kenny Loggins who was a big part of the original film as his hit "Danger Zone" was the theme song which is forever stuck in everyone's head. Cruise tweeted on May 31 that production for the long-awaited sequel had started.

Well, guess what? Val Kilmer has been roped in for the second edition of the film as well which has been titled as "Top Gun: Maverick". It's just a shame that Goose (Anthony Edwards) won't be there, but hopefully, there will be a nod to the character.
